Bond’s no secret

Friday, January 19, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Given the lengthy public outreach process associated with the upcoming city bond election, some of our readers were surprised to see that today’s meeting of the Reinvestments in Facilities and Assets working group of the Bond Election Advisory Task Force was intimidatingly identified as “WORKING GROUP ONLY.” A city spokesperson set the Austin Monitor straight: Any member of the public is welcome to attend the meeting, but the working group will not be taking public comment. Instead, it will be focusing on readying its recommendations (based, in part, on prior public comment). Rest assured, there will be plenty of time to weigh in on propositions before they end up on the November ballot.
